Pharmacy services for young people
Encouraging young people to access pharmacy services was something we put forward in our Access to Pharmacy Services report. This year our work will continue to support the County Durham & Darlington Local Pharmaceutical Committee (LPC). We are looking at ways to engage with young people across the area.
Our first steps with this latest piece of work has included initial contact with youth groups in the area and the creation of a survey that seeks the views of young people. The survey is intended to find out more about young people's experience and knowledge of pharmacy services in their community.
We will continue to promote ways for young people to access their local pharmacy and to be aware of what help is available.
